Liberty oriented citizens blast Supreme Court

Two controversial decisions in two days yielded some harsh words from liberty oriented citizens today for the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS).

Scalia continued his acerbic sarcasm today in reaction to the court's decision on gay marriage, stating that the decision reads like a fortune cookie.

Reaction to Obamacare ruling indicates deep discontent

Reaction to the SCOTUS ruling Thursday on Obamacare was swift and scathing. Kentucky senator and presidential candidate Rand Paul, R-Ky., stated that "we have made a big mistake here." Gov.

Even Supreme Court veteran Justice Antonin Scalia reserved the most vehement reaction of his entire career for his colleagues on the court whom he said ignored the rule of law. He sarcastically referred to the majority decision as SCOTUScare.

The most obvious characteristic for Clinton has been a shocking willingness to limit the access of reporters. Amid the complaints of these reporters, however, have been a few rare voices that notice a vulnerability in the candidate that has never been present in her previous campaigns.

IRS, State Dept. the most transparent in history?

In 2008 prior to being elected President, Barack Obama pledged that his administration would be the most transparent in history. It turns out that the question is not whether or not it has lived up to Obama's pledge. Everyone knows it has not. The real question is how much closer to transparency the administration has become, if at all. If a new assessment provided by the Las Vegas Review-Journal today is any indication, the answer to that question is the only thing that is transparent.

Federal judge orders IRS to court

In a late breaking development cited by Judicial Watch (JW), a federal judge has ordered the IRS to court. Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the IRS to appear before the court to answer for its delaying tactics and stonewalling. At issue is the ongoing Congressional investigation into the scandal during which the agency admitted it had delayed and at times harassed conservative and Tea Party groups that had sought tax exempt status prior to the 2012 election.
